Harrogate Fashion Week has announced the dates for the spring/summer 2022 edition. Dates of 1 – 2 August have been confirmed and the response so far from agents and manufacturers within clothing, footwear and accessory brands has been really positive.
An overwhelming comment from the industry this season has been that a fashion trade show is needed to meet up with both new and current stockists on a good date line and in a central location. Sarah Moody, director of HFW comments: “With Moda, Scoop and Pure moving later in the year, we felt it was vital for the industry to have a show on dates that suited their production schedules, and enabled them to get stock to the retailers at the right time of year. And importantly keeping a calendar of seasonal stock, to support the retailers.
“HFW has shown an increase in brands since the first show held in Harrogate Convention Centre in 2019, and with the overwhelming response we have already received since this announcement we are confident this August edition will be our biggest show to date.”
“The Harrogate Convention Centre have confirmed that they will be back open for business from late April so by August the site will be running as normal. Harrogate has always been a popular host town and ideal for networking after hours.” Wendy Adams, director of HFW explained.
Harrogate Fashion Week will return for its fifth edition on 1 and 2 August 2021. Exhibitor bookings are now being taken. Buyer registration will open in April when the participation brands will be listed on the website.
